Mimi Movie Story
The story is about Mimi a small-town girl aspiring to be an actress. She is approached by Bhanu with an offer to be a surrogate mother for an American Couple. In return for 20 lakh rupees (2 Million).
She accepts the offer and shifts with her friend in a different (Momaiden) society with Bhanu as her husband. Because, she cannot tell her parents about it and a single pregnant lady is not something which the society loves to see. Things mess up when the couple denies having that baby after few months and asks her to abort the child.
She refuses to do it and eventually her parents get to know about her pregnancy. After continuous interrogation from her family, she takes the name of Bhanu as the father of the child. This brings a hilarious turn to the movie.
The story of the movie looks similar to a Bollywood movie named Chori Chori Chupke Chukpe (2001). Starring Salman Khan, Preity Zinta, and Rani Mukharji. It came out in 2001 and the movie was not accepted by the audience wholeheartedly. The theme of the movie for that time was way too much to absorb in. It was difficult for people to take it in that something like surrogacy can be an option for couples.
But the plot twist of Mimi is different. It is an adaptation of the Marathi Film Mala Aai Vhhaychy! (2010).
The songs of the movie are composed by none other than A.R Rehman. It also assures the songs are going to be original. It has overall about 4-5 songs. Recently, a song is released Param Sundari, which is a peppy dance number.
The best song this movie feature is Rihaayi De. It is a melody by A.R.Rehman. Released a day back, the song has already garnered 17M+ views.
Mimi Movie Shooting Location:
The movie is shot in Churu, Rajasthan. Accordingly, all the actors in the movie will be playing the character of the Rajasthani background. Excluding the American couple. It’ll build up the situation efficiently of a girl from a small town.
What to Expect?
If you have seen Badhaai Ho starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra, and Neena Gupta, you might be knowing what to expect. The movie is going to be simple yet effective. It will deliver the message on surrogacy, and the struggles/risks which come in handy with it.
The trailer of the movie Mimi makes it irresistible to wait for the movie. It has fueled the expectations. The sole reasons to watch this movie are the story, songs by A.R Rehman, and acting by Pankaj Tripathi and Kriti Sanon.
The theme is fresh, the story is new and people are anticipating the movie to be a gem.
Mimi Movie 2021 Review [Updated 27th July]
A gem indeed. Though the movie is an adaptation of the famous Marathi film Mala Aai Vhhaychy (2010) (and an original is an original).
But, we get to witness some wonderful performances with the release of the Mini movie 2021.
With Mimi, Kriti Sanon gives a mind-blowing performance. She proves her capabilities that she is more than just a commercial movie star.
Pankaj Tripathi will just steal your heart. There is this simplicity in his performance that always wins your heart.
